Best baby play mat to keep busy little babies safe from skinned knees and sore bottoms… We're sharing our pick for a play mat that is soft for toddling, sturdy enough to last and stylish too!
I love all things baby! Well, almost all things baby. I'll be honest, I don't really love all the primary colors that come with your typical baby gear. It's sensory overload for me. I prefer softer colors when it comes to decorating and most baby pieces are a big, bright eye sore.
Now that our little man is crawling all over the place we needed a play mat that we could put down in our living room that would buffer the traction. Hightailing it across our rug was starting to make his chubby little knees red. And soon he'll be trying to stand so his bottom needed a softer spot to bounce around on too!
Baby Floor Mat
I found the perfect play mat on Amazon. The Baby Care Play Mat is one large piece of cushioning so soft you can drop an egg on it from 10ft up and it won't break! It's two-sided so you can change it up from baby shapes to a more stylish pattern that will fit your space. I love the soft, playful pattern we chose. It's fun for baby but I can also flip it over to the gray petal side when we have company over or just want something a bit more subtle.
I love that this play mat is waterproof and super easy to clean. I can wipe it down with baby wipes in seconds. It's also nontoxic, free from phthalate, BPA, lead, latex, formaldehyde and EVA.
The cushioning is soft and comfortable enough to cradle those first falls, but solid enough to last. It even comes with a free 2-year warranty.
